RWG Germany modernizes its ERP environment with IFS Applications

RWG

Airframe bearings specialist chooses IFS to optimize work processes and enhance groupwide transparency

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that RWG Germany, a specialist producer of complex airframe bearings for the global aerospace industry, will implement IFS Applications™.

At RWG Germany, part of the Kaman group, IFS Applications will replace a number of legacy systems that had grown cumbersome to maintain due to a patchwork of customizations. Moreover, the previous solutions could not efficiently map the communication between the company’s individual divisions nor the communication between the parent company and sister companies.

RWG Germany chose IFS Applications because of its out-of-the-box support of industry-specific requirements, its ease of integration throughout the business, its ability to simplify the data exchange within the group, and its comprehensive analysis capabilities.

With IFS Applications, RWG Germany will modernize its IT environment and streamline business processes while optimizing communication within the global Kaman group. The integrated ERP software will provide full business transparency while integrating the different parts of the organization. In a future phase of the implementation, the company’s field service division will also be able to access the integrated CRM module. The IFS solution includes components for financials, human resources, distribution, manufacturing, and marketing.

“We chose IFS Applications because it is a state-of-the-art standard solution that supports our daily work processes in an optimal way. The global nature of IFS and its solution, coupled with the extensive industry know-how of its staff, were other important reasons for our choice,“ said Hermann Mannschatz, Managing Director of RWG Germany. “By implementing IFS Applications, we are sure that we can increase the satisfaction of our customers even more.“

Peter Höhne, Vice President Sales & Marketing, IFS Europe Central in Erlangen, Germany added, ”We are delighted to have won one of the world's leading manufacturers of airframe bearings as a new customer. RWG Germany is an important customer win and further evidence of our competence in the aerospace and defense manufacturing industry. Many global companies in this sector use IFS Applications to support their specific requirements.“
